Drive, the deliriously bloody and overwrought Ryan Gosling art thriller that premiered two years ago at Cannes, is a movie that I found stylish in its way (it was hard not to, given that the film was nothing but style), but also luridly unconvincing. I didn’t see it, or even hear anything about it, until its opening weekend, and later, as I caught up with the ecstatic reviews and began to talk to people who thought it was some sort of nihilistic pop masterpiece, I realized that the elements of Drive that I had experienced as borderline loopy — like, »

In just 8 short days, the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival kicks off, and one of the most anticipated films has to unquestionably be Nicolas Winding Refn’s follow-up to his hugely acclaimed art-house thriller Drive, the mysteriously titled Only God Forgives. Reunited with Ryan Gosling for another film that seems set to challenge audiences as much as it entertains them, the exotic setting, international cast and more ambitious premise could put the film in line to live up to, if not outdo Refn’s previous work.
In a little over a week, we’ll have all the answers as reviews begin to seep out over the course of the festival. As for now, we can only speculate from the gorgeous trailers and clips we’ve seen so far.
One of the highlights of Drive was how absurdly ultra-violent it was, »

Marc Maron has made no secret of his ongoing plea for Jon Stewart to come on his show, and on a recent appearance on HuffPost Live, the acclaimed "Wtf" podcast host (and star of the upcoming "Maron" on IFC) confirmed that the "Daily Show" anchor has no plans to go on Maron's show anytime soon, due to their rocky history.
"I thought, 'I'm the guy who apologizes to people on my show,'" he continued. "Jon said, 'That's not going to happen. If you want to talk to me, maybe we can talk over coffee.'"

Chicago – “The Guilt Trip” is hideously uninspired dreck of the most shameful variety. It casts two major yet mismatched talents and refuses to utilize their distinctive gifts for the entirety of its running time. All they’re required to do is sleepwalk through a plot so uninspired that audiences will have no problem predicting its path with their eyes closed and their ears covered.
Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen certainly rank as one of the least convincing mother-son duos in movie history. There wasn’t a single instant in which I believed that this unlikely pair were related in any way, apart from sharing the same frame. Rogen does a nice job of portraying the squirmy straightman, but Streisand is such a cartoonish caricature of smothering mother love that she appears to have been spawned directly from a petri dish of clichés. She’s as believable a mother as Patricia Heaton is a Midwesterner. »

The simple tale of a lost clownfish looking to get home remains one of animation studio Pixar's best-loved and most successful hits. When young Nemo (Alexander Gould) is separated from his protective dad (Albert Brooks), he embarks on an eye-opening adventure on which he makes shoals of friends - not least the forgetful blue tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) - and an ocean full of dangers. With Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush and Barry Humphries on board, the vocal colour is just as rich as the spectacular animation. »

“Folks, I got to be honest with you,” Leno said at the start of Wednesday’s edition of “Tonight.” “I had a really awkward day today. I had to call David Letterman and tell him he didn’t get ‘The Tonight Show’ again! Awful! Terrible!”
David Letterman made pretty much the same joke in his monologue, which surprised observed for its general warmth toward his longtime rival.
“I got a call from my mom today, she said ‘Well, David, I see you didn’t get ‘The Tonight Show’ again,” Letterman said.
“He’s retiring, so it says, and good for him. I’ve known him 38 years. I’ve known Jay Leno for 38 years…so now he’s out again, but going out on top, »

Since then it has been given an official title of Finding Dory and a release date of November 25, 2015. Here’s the press release from Disney with some great quotes from the people involved.
